Fire Dog Chinese Astrology

The Sheep Dog?

Wood RatBeing a Fire Dog day in a Sheep month, you may think today's title was a no brainer. However it does have a deeper meaning, and as the Chinese almanac suggests the only favourable activities today involve the rearing or cultivating of animals, a Sheep Dog would be most useful. 

The almanac also suggests fixing nets and catching fish and as it’s a fire day, honouring our ancestors is also auspicious. It advises against setting up an oven or digging foundations.

As sheep dogs help retrieve strays and restore unity to the pack, I am reminded that tomorrow sees the end of Mercury retrograde and hopefully, “normal service will soon be resumed”.

Returning to Chinese astrology, there are actually five types of Dog.  They are all dedicated to public service or helping others, but today's Fire Dog is the most creative. Being a pack animal, they are well travelled, highly sociable and have an uncanny knack for making money by “thinking outside the box”. Their physical features are generally square with angular faces and pointed extremities.

Famous Fire Dog examples are Swami Beyondananda, Cher, Deepak Chopra, Timothy Dalton, Matt Damon, Bill Gates, Joanna Lumley, Freddie Mercury, Dolly Parton, Alan Rickman, David Lee Roth, Steven Spielberg, Donald Trump, Jean Claude Van Damme, Kate Winslet and Yo Yo Ma.

Lazy Red Setter mows the lawn

 It’s a Fire Dog day, and as red is the colour associated with the fire element, you can easily see how we chose today's title. This Dog day is good for Horse and Tiger signs, but not much else. The Chinese almanac suggest only tree felling as a suitable activity, which I interpret as mowing the lawn.  Gazing through the office window at the meadow like effect of extremely long grass in our garden, it seems about time too. 

We have a dedicated Fire Dog web page which will tell you how your own sign will fare today and we will return as normal on Tuesday. Until then enjoy every moment of NOW!

Let the dog see the rabbit

Wood Rat Pillar

Today’s title is a phrase that traditionally refers to finding purpose. This seems perfectly appropriate as it’s not only a Dog day in a Rabbit month but we translate the feng shui almanac to find the most successful daily activity.

As Dog and Rabbit form a special combination and are highly compatible, it is a good day especially for partnerships. Today favours travelling to meet friends, meditating and getting engaged or married. Honouring ancestors, asking for blessings, emigrating, refurbishing a home or office, laying foundations, buying or setting direction for your bed, planting seeds or fixing nets are also auspicious. Whilst fixing the loo, or a fire and eating certain Chinese delicacies; not so much.

The fire formed by the special combination between Dog and Rabbit is also well timed as today is a Fire Dog day. If your Day Pillar has this influence, you are extremely generous to those close to you and can express yourself easily. Of the five types of Dog, the Fire Dog is the most creative of all, so much so that they inspire all other Dog types too.

Fire Dogs can also be dedicated to public service or helping others. Being a pack animal, they would enjoy their friends and are therefore highly sociable. They have an uncanny knack for making money by “thinking outside the box”. Their physical features are generally square with angular faces and pointed extremities.

Famous Fire Dog examples are Swami Beyondananda, Cher, Deepak Chopra Timothy Dalton Matt Damon, Bill Gates, Joanna Lumley, Freddie Mercury, Dolly Parton, Alan Rickman, David Lee Roth, Steven Spielberg, Donald Trump, Jean Claude Van Damme, Kate Winslet and Yo Yo Ma.

We are really busy again tomorrow, so our blog will return next Tuesday. Until then, enjoy every moment of NOW!

Fire Dog Chinese astrology - Red Dog day?

As red is associated with fire, today’s title is a rough allusion to the Fire Dog sign. Starting of with a timid attempt at humour should tell you that today is less than auspicious. That said, it is a time of interacting with nature and providing for our families and futures, therefore making wedding plans, settling accounts, building a home or dyke and preparing nets for fishing. In modern day parlance, it is probably also a good day for the weekly shop.
Dog people are artistic, creative, social, honest and loyal and include Kate Bush, Macy Gray, Jennifer Lopez, Simon Pegg, Claudia Schiffer to name but a few.

Hot diggety dog 

Fire Dog?

Today's title is a bit twee I know, but it seems to sum up the effects of a Fire Dog day in an obvious and then subtle and informative way. Why? Well hot is associated with the fire element, that’s apparent as is Dog, being a Fire Dog day. Now here is the clever bit; the whole title is an expression of joy, excitement and delight and that’s exactly how the fire element can make one feel.

A fire dog person would know this because they are excellent at expressing themselves as well as being highly creative. A natural magnetism can make others feel warm and fuzzy too. Are you a fire dog, find out with our free Chinese horoscope?

Fire Dog have an uncanny knack for making money by “thinking outside the box”.  Their physical features are generally square with angular faces and pointer extremities.

The Chinese almanac recommends walkies, having a shampoo, getting a new basket or bed, digging a hole and seeing a vet as suitable activities for today. for all other signs this translates to travelling, having a haircut, buying or setting direction for your bed, moving earth, seeing a doctor or choosing a treatment.

Get inspired for new beginnings

A Fire Dog day in a Rabbit month is generally auspicious as these Chinese zodiac animals form an alliance. This compatible combination brings an element of fire, which represents the height of growth and is linked to inspiration. Especially so, as today’s Fire in Fire Dog represents the mind and usually the highest of ideals.  

Famous Fire Dogs are Swami Beyondananda, Cher  Deepak Chopra  Timothy Dalton  Matt Damon, Bill Gates, Joanna Lumley,  Freddie Mercury, Dolly Parton,  Alan Rickman,    David Lee Roth, Steven Spielberg,  Donald Trump,  Jean Claude Van Damme, Kate Winslet and Yo Yo Ma

Favoured members of a Dogs pack include Tiger and Horse signs; the former will find it easier to manage their affairs or staff today and can be lucky with short term investments. Their males together with Rabbit signs are also lucky in love. Our equine friends meanwhile should be much less stressed and able to catch up with postponed projects, if so inclined as they may just take some personal time instead. Snake signs may also feel the same but need to be careful of small print in contracts.


Dragons are clashed and need to be careful to protect their shoulders and chest, although they will feel much less pressurised.  As Rat and Pig signs are prominent and easily recognised, they therefore need to be careful of what they are doing. Their females can find romance though. Monkeys can gain constructive criticism which they can implement and immediately feel the benefits. Rooster signs are having a tough time and are clashed all year, moreso this month and can actually find sanctuary and solace today. Goats  can have their plans develop whilst Ox’s may need to rethink theirs.

As the Dog and Rabbit are such good friends the Chinese almanac follows this theme and recommends activities relating to partnerships. These include, meditation, travelling, getting engaged or married, emigrating, laying foundations,  buying or setting direction for your bed, or planting seeds for new beginnings. - Fire Dog Chinese astrology horoscope first posted 1st April 2011
